Rain Water Harvesting Tank Installed at Assemblies of God Church

Reported by Rebero Jean d'Amour, Story written by Amanda Mulder

In January, Water Project volunteers installed a Rain Water Harvesting tank at Assemblies of God Church in the Rukumberi sector. Volunteers still need to complete gutters before the system will be fully functional. When completed, the system will serve 208 beneficiaries from the church and surrounding community

Solution:
We place these rainwater collection tanks at centrally-located churches, which shortens the walk for water and improves water quality. Churches sell the water at an affordable rate and use the income to maintain the system. Remaining funds are given to the poorest members of the community for school fees, health insurance, and other basic needs.
